When I played the preview build for Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan a few months ago, I was most amazed by how it made me care about the storyline and characters in a beat 'em up. Not that I didn't enjoy the combat, which involved mid-air combos and flinging flaming lions and people's faces. Still, it was that careful mixture of narrative and over-the-top combat, blended so that one didn't overshadow the other, that showed the unique skills of the developers at Kiro'o Games. To complete that vision, they've recently turned to Kickstarter, hoping to raise funds to help further develop the game. Consider taking a peek if you want to see more of the fantasy world they're woven for their game as well as the involved combat style.
